Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this cartoon is filled with sexual innuendoes and humor. Although the characters' various deformities are exaggerated for comedy, the underlying implication of the effects of toxic waste on our lives is slightly disturbing. Good lessons are scattered throughout the show, as the characters exhibit amazingly indomitable spirits despite their limitations.

Sexual Content

The main characters have sex nearly every night, and though the act isn't shown, the noises come through loud and clear. Sexual banter between the husband and wife is a series mainstay. One character has a phallus-shaped growth on her head.


Not applicable


"Ass," and "oh, God" (mostly during sex) are common.

Social Behavior

Aside from her addictions to sex, cigarettes, and alcohol, the mom is a devoted wife who loves her kids and thinks the world of her husband, despite his extreme deformities. The dad always puts his family first and is clearly in love with his wife. Characters with disabilities never poke fun at each other's issues, but the snobby residents of The Hills can be cruel.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

The mom chills out at the neighborhood bar and often drinks at home. She smokes cigarettes constantly, and the dad uses a pipe at home.
